Public Consultation

Our approach to public consultation reflects our commitment to place based planning. The place based approach to planning is an approach that recognizes that the people in a place are often the best ones to identify and find solutions to issues affecting the community. Taking a place based approach to the planning process ensures that recommendations reflect the data collected, current best practices as well as the unique needs and desires of the community. Our public consultation programs are specifically tailored to meet the needs of our clients. We utilize the following consultation tools to provide a variety of opportunities to communicate collaborate with stakeholders:

  • Surveys and targeted questionnaires for stakeholders
  • Stakeholder meetings, phone interviews, conference calls and video conferencing
  • Public Open Houses and Focused Planning Workshops
  • Focus Group sessions with stakeholders groups and community members which incorporate World Café style discussions and when appropriate, design charrette
